About Latifa


"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.
The time will pass anyway."

Prelude

Ever since I stepped into the world of education, from the little age of 4, I have dreamt of completing a Masters's degree - not because I have brown, Asian parents and that they told me to, no, but it was because I loved learning. I enjoyed learning and back then, I thought Master's was the end of learning, but as I grow older, I am realising that learning is endless. The quote by Earl Nightingale appeared to me during my GCSEs, where I felt like giving up due to the pressure around me from teachers, family and indirectly, my peers. I was going to fail - I should forget what I dreamt of. September 2023, I am a student at University of Greenwich, studying Masters in Web Design and Content Planning, with many more dreams to accomplish.

Hi, I am Latifa. Welcome to my page!

My Artistic Endeavours (just a few of them)

I am always seeking to learn and have fun. Being a creative person, I enjoy exploring and taking on creative activities, whether they continue being a hobby or develop into a long-term project, a one-time fun experience or a form of therapy.

Mehndi By Tifa

One of my current projects, Mehndi By Tifa, flourished from a hobby that started as a childhood pastime. The intricate patterns and delicate strokes of henna always fascinated me, and over the years, I've immersed myself in perfecting its art. Mehndi By Tifa, encapsulates my dedication and love for this timeless art form whilst I aspire to share the magic of henna with the world. Join me on Instagram, Tiktok and Facebook, as I paint stories of tradition and celebration, capturing the essence of henna's timeless allure.

Party decorating

Being able to transform a space in to a visually appealing and thematic environment enhances the mood or message of the event/celebration. Ever since my baby sister was born, I have taken the responsibility of giving her the best experience for celebrations that we celebrate, especially as a Muslim, Eid and Ramadan are fundamental to our religion and I want my baby sister to be more engaged with the religion but making it an enjoyable learning experience and a celebration to look forward to.

Keepsake Baby Blanket

A few of the artistic endeavours I have taken up are because of my baby sister; after 18 years, my mother had her and I want to give my baby sister the experiences I wasn't able to experience or have the things I wasn't able to get. Babies do grow up fast before you know it and she most likely had and has more clothes than I currently own. My family is against waste and as much as I wanted to donate her clothes to charity, I wanted to create something with those outgrown clothes and gift it to my sister. Another one of my current projects; keepsake baby blanket, recycling her clothes. I searched online how to get started, what equipment I needed and the method required. I purchased the equipment, gathered her clothes and began cutting. I am currently on 300+ square pieces that I have cut from her clothes, whether it be play-suits/jumpsuits, dresses, trousers, jumpers, vests, scarves, hats and more, of different materials and textures. I aim to make her a blanket that covers her head-to-toe no matter how big she grows.
